It’s been 30 years since Stephen Roche won the Triple Crown of the Giro d’Italia, Tour de France and World Championships in less than six months.

To mark the anniversary, cycle maker Officina Battaglin has launched a special edition Stephen Roche frameset. Like the original Battaglin bike ridden by Roche, the new Stephen Roche frameset is made of steel. And since it’s 30 years ago, Battaglin is only making 30 of the Roche frames, building them to order.
